Does it matter what words you conscuiously choose to express an idea or thought?
Let’s first ask ourselves this question. What is reality? According to wikipedia, “Reality is the state of things as they actually exist, rather than as they may appear or may be thought to be.” That we know is an old and obsolete definition. Esoterically, we know that reality is only in our mind and the impressions. Reality is only thoughts, words and forms.
Esoteric gnosis teaches us that our words have power over our thoughts and actions. They also impact and influence people we speak/communicate to. Since thoughts determine actions, there’s a powerful connection between the words we use and the results we get.
Words create impressions, images and expectations. They build psychological connections. They influence how we think. Different words evoke different feelings. Well chosen ones can motivate, offer hope, create vision, impact thinking and alter results. Words and statements work both ways, to build or destroy. It is the way we use them that determines whether they are going to bring good or harmful results.
So, Does it really matter what words you conscuiously choose to express an idea or thought?
Majority of the population thinks in words, in a language that they are most comfortable and familiar with. That makes words very powerful. Whether within our own thoughts, spoken or written, words have the power to transform the world we live in. Hypnotherapists are told not to use negatives in their hypnotic suggestions. They are told, “the subconscious mind doesn’t “hear” negatives”. The subconscious mind does not hear the negative and therefore any negative suggestion will be heard in the positive. The Subconscious mind accepts what is put into it WITHOUT QUESTION because it is, unlike the conscious mind, non-analytical, non-critical, non-judgmental, non-thinking mind.
What is the point of all this?
The point is to provoke your thought into picking right set of words to experss any idea or communication. Positve sentences tell us what something is, should be, has or does. Negative sentence tells us what something is not, should not be, has not been or does not do.
1. I hate bananas
2. No more negative news
3. I will fail
Same communication can be turned around into postive sentence
1. I don’t like bananas
2. Positive news only
3. I will not succeed
An experiment for you to do:
Try saying (out loud) a sentence/message. First, say it as a negative sentence a few times. Feel the vibe of the sentence and be aware of the feeling it creates with in you. Next, say the same as a positive sentence a few times. Feel the vibe of the sentence and be aware of the feeling it creates with in you. Do you notice the difference? The feel and the vibe of these sentences are very different. The positive sentence creates a good feel in you, even if the message has negative intent. The negative sentence creates a heavy feeling and you almost cringe, even if the message has positive intent.
So choose your words wisely and very carefully. Turn your communication around. Use positive words only. All the time, every time.
peace & love
